August 8, 2018
Foundations Recovery Network’s latest conference to contribute to Nashville’s growing focus on addiction and mental health awareness and education
Brentwood, TN | August 6, 2018 – Foundations Recovery Network (FRN), an innovative behavioral health treatment provider, is proud to announce that the Innovations in Behavioral Healthcare Conference (IIBH) will be returning to Nashville for the fourth year in a row. The conference will be held August 9-10 at the brand new JW Marriott downtown.
The two keynote presentations kicking off and wrapping up the event will feature nationally and locally recognized community leaders on addiction and mental health. The 2016 CNN Hero and a White House “Champion of Change,” Becca Stevens, founder and president of Thistle Farms, will draw from her personal experience as leading a community of survivors to become the largest social justice enterprise in the US. The event’s final speaker is Miles Adcox, owner and CEO of Onsite, an internationally known emotional wellness lifestyle brand. He will present on emotional fitness, guiding attendees through living a centered life, while teaching them to thrive in today’s 100-mile per hour, high-stress environment.
In between the keynotes will be two days packed with presentations and an exhibit hall focused on exploring new and emerging modalities and proven approaches to substance abuse and co-occurring treatment. The event will also highlight breakthroughs in complex mental health disorders and process addictions. The primary goal of IIBH is to equip treatment professionals and organizations to effectively meet the needs of specialized clients and demographics and to inform them of the latest business trends and topics impacting the industry.
New this year, IIBH is celebrating those who are making a difference on the front lines and furthering the cause of recovery in local communities. IIBH will be hosting two initiatives that speak to those actions. The first is a free and open-to-the-community Naloxone Training taking place on Friday, August 10 at 7:30 am. The training is hosted in conjunction with the Nashville Prevention Partnership, Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Regional Opioid Prevention Specialists and Kaléo. Secondly, Foundations Recovery Network will be giving back to three Nashville organizations that are making a huge impact for people in need: Healing Housing, STARS Nashville and Park Center. Attendees have the power to help send these charities home with a financial gift to boost the great work they’re doing here in Tennessee through a “Charity Challenge.”
